Veto DC's Assisted Suicide Bill

This petition had 257 supporters

Mayor Bowser,

I strongly oppose the Death with Dignity Act (Bill 21-38). It lacks many basic safeguards for city residents particularly those belonging to vulnerable populations. In fact the legislation does not require the self-administration of the lethal drugs thereby allowing coercion, abuse, and even murder of patients by third parties. The legislation may also have a devastating impact upon health care and insurance in our city. Unfortunately these concerns were not addressed adequately by the city council. Finally a large number of residents oppose assisted suicide. Therefore, we urge you to stand with us and veto the legislation. Thank You.
